OLD EPIRBS WARNING

-

If you have an old EPIRB (Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon) which is out of date, don’t just throw it in the rubbish bin.

By all accounts, every year thousands of dollars are spent in the country searching for beacons emitting a distress signal, that end up being found in rubbish dumps.

Dispose of your EPIRB as detailed by the manufactur­er, and after disposal please advise the Australian Maritime Safety Authority.
